This laptop I’m typing away on is a very important part of my day. Almost like a family member. Seriously, y’all. I need this thing. For work, not just to play Candy Crush. A-hem.
My boys love their online time, too. But I need to keep them (and my laptop) safe. CocoonKids for KlaasKids not only gives parents a free tool to manage their kids’ website visits, but it also protects your family’s personal information and the family computer.
I love that it’s free. Because aren’t we all paying out enough for soccer pics and spring school pics and fundraisers and new shoes and pants(my boys wear holes in every. single. pair. of pants they own). So it’s nice to know that this useful tool is free. Here’s what else you should know about CocoonKids for KlaasKids:
Those whitelists? They were created by parents who have already checked out those sites and know they are safe for kids(parents like me… well, actually, not like me- me! I contributed to the lists!). But you can take the time to make your own lists if you’d rather and your kids can’t visit a site not on their approved list unless they have your permission.
The CocoonKids for KlaasKids software is free to download so you can try it out yourself.
Tomorrow night, Wednesday, April 10th from 9-10pm ET, CocoonKids is having a twitter party where we’ll talk about how to keep our kids safe online, product tips, and answer questions you might have. And the prizes are pretty amazing(you’ve been waiting for me to tell you about that iPad mini giveaway, haven’t you?). Four $50 gift cards and an iPad Mini will be given away during the party. And pssst, there will be a prize given away that only those of you who have downloaded the software will be able to win.
RSVP over on the CocoonKids for KlaasKids blog(you have to RSVP to win!) and while you’re at it, be sure to follow @getcocoonkids on twitter and like them on facebook so you’re ready to party tomorrow night.
I am part of the CocoonKids for KlaasKids Mom Advisory Board and am compensated for my work with them. However, my opinions and my desire to keep my kids safe online are my own.
